Publisher's Summary

Winner of the CWA International Dagger
In kidnapping cases, the first few hours are crucial. After that, the chances of being found alive go from slim to nearly none. Alex Prevost – beautiful, resourceful, tough – may be no ordinary victim, but her time is running out. Commandant Camille Verhoeven and his detectives have nothing to go on: no suspect, no lead, rapidly diminishing hope.
All they know is that a girl was snatched off the streets of Paris and bundled into a white van. The enigma that is the fate of Alex will keep Verhoeven guessing until the bitter, bitter end. And before long, saving her life will be the least of his worries.

“Grippingly original . . . It enthralls at every stage of its unpredictability” (The Times)
“The book moves from read-as-fast-as-you-can horror to an intricately plotted race to a dark truth” (Guardian)
"Harsh, fierce crime writing with a Gauloise tinge. It would not be out of place filmedin black-and-white by the late, lamented Francois Truffaut" (Daily Mail)

Brutal and addictive

If you can stomach the violence, this is a wonderful twist on the crime genre. French noir, thumbs up from Norway.
